WELCOME

A Message from our County Executive Dear Chamber members and friends, In my office, I have a framed print of a watercolor done by local artist Geraldine McKeown. The print is of the Turkey Point Lighthouse at the tip of the Elk Neck Peninsula. What attracted me to this painting was that it isn’t the normal frame of reference you normally see when you see this lighthouse. Rather, it’s an aerial view of the structure, the 100-foot high bluff and surrounding water. It reminds me of the importance of perspective. Every day, we have a choice. We can move through our lives the same way we always do - or we can choose to view things with a fresh perspective and attitude. A great example of that is the Cecil County Chamber’s “I Cecil” campaign. The community’s support of this new initiative has been incredibly encouraging - and so deserved. Cecil County has much to be proud of! We are blessed to have a deep historical legacy, beautiful surroundings, and wonderful people. We are a community that will play an integral part of our region’s

Cecil County Chamber of Commerce

economic future, and our perspective is critical in order to take advantage of all that is to come. It’s been my sincere pleasure to work together with so many of you in making Cecil County an even better place to live, work and play. I’m very proud of what we have accomplished, and look forward to the future. Best wishes for continued success...with a fresh perspective! Sincerely, Tari Moore Cecil County Executive

WELCOME

WELCOME TO CECIL COUNTY Steeped in History, Rich in Natural Resources, Full of Promise Beautiful Cecil County is tucked along the upper banks of the Chesapeake Bay, midway between Philadelphia and Baltimore. Two hundred miles of shoreline, open space, eight incorporated and inviting towns, and wonderful rural attractions make Cecil County a great place to spend a day…or a lifetime. Neighborly communities offer a unique character and fascinating history, as well as youth sports teams, family friendly events, a community hospital, volunteer opportunities, and wonderful outdoor recreation. Cecil County’s scenery is frequently sought after by nature photographers, and locally owned, award-winning restaurants make Cecil County a favorite choice as a dining destination. It’s Cecil County’s unique charisma and eclectic mix that make it a wonderful destination for residents and visitors, as well as companies who consider “quality of life” to be important for their employees.

Cecil County’s location on Interstate 95 provides easy access to the Mid-Atlantic region, as well as to BWI and Philadelphia airports. While being located in the midst of a heavily populated corridor, the County offers an oasis

Cecil County Community Pride Campaign The concept for the “I Cecil” County-wide community pride campaign was initiated by the Chamber as a way of promoting the very best that Cecil County has to offer. Within just a few months of production, the “I Cecil” logo has been embraced by Cecil County-based community organizations, government agencies and businesses. “If a community has a good attitude about itself, it becomes contagious,” said Bonnie Grady, Chamber President/ CEO. “This is a call to action, to engage local groups, agencies and businesses throughout the County who wish to incorporate the ‘I Cecil’ message in their everyday activities.” If your business or organization is interested in making the “I Love Cecil” logo part of your identity, send an e-mail to info@cecilchamber.com for more information.

LOCATION & TRANSPORTATION

LOCATION & TRANSPORTATION Strategic Access to Key Markets Cecil County’s desirable Mid-Atlantic location on the Interstate 95 I-95 corridor in northeastern Maryland has made it one of the region’s most sought after business locations. Situated midway between the metropolitan areas of Baltimore and Philadelphia, Cecil County’s strategic location offers businesses overnight access to markets in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia and Washington, DC. Cecil County’s well-developed transportation system offers easy access via land, rail and water. On November 14, 1963, President John F. Kennedy came to Cecil County to dedicate the area’s first modern-day toll road. Today I-95, along with US Route 40, supports the Growth Corridor. Three interchanges Perryville, North East and Elkton provide direct access for each of the County’s eight commercial industrial parks. Main lines for CSX and Norfolk Southern railroads,

Cecil County Chamber of Commerce

plus Amtrak commuter lines, provide vital rail transportation linkages. The Chesapeake and Delaware C&D Canal provides easy connections to the Chesapeake Bay and the Port of Baltimore for both commercial transport and leisure travel. Millions of tons of cargo are transported through the Canal annually. The US Army Corps of Engineers project office is located in Chesapeake City, along with the C&D Canal Museum and the Bethel Bridge Lighthouse. Scheduled air service is available one hour south of Cecil County on I-95 at the Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport BWI, and 45 minutes to the north on I-95 at the Philadelphia International Airport PHL. Air service is also available at the New Castle Airport in nearby Wilmington, DE. Claremont Airport Cecil County Airport, south of the town of Elkton, has a 2,600 foot runway.

GOVERNMENT

CECIL COUNTY GOVERNMENT Dynamic, Efficient, Responsive On November 2, 2010, the citizens of Cecil County voted to switch to a charter form of government. This allowed them to establish a more dynamic, efficient, and responsive form of county government and empowered them to exercise greater local authority to govern. Charter government allows for the separation of the executive and legislative branches. Both the County Executive and County Council serve four-year terms. Cecil County’s first County Executive was elected on November 6, 2012. The Council is comprised of five county residents who reside in their respective districts and are elected at large by the Cecil County voters. The Council members choose a President and Vice President from among their members. The General Fund budget for Cecil County for fiscal year 2016 was approved at $182.1 million. Property taxes account for 59 percent of the County’s revenues, while 30 percent comes from local income taxes. Budgeted expenses for fiscal 2016 include $114 million 63 percent of the total budget for transfers, and just under $40 million 22 percent for salaries and fringe benefits. The County budget also supports the community’s high quality of life through outstanding citizen service programs, over 200 miles of shoreline, and 15,000 acres of parkland.

OUR TOWNS Eclectic Charm, Scenic Beauty, Rich History Cecilton Cecilton owes its existence to August Herman, an immigrant to America in 1633 and the subject of heroic legend. He was the builder and first Lord of Bohemia Manor. Herman made several attempts to establish a town named for his friend Cecilius Calvert in lower Cecil County, but, uncharacteristically, he was not successful. Several generations later, a descendant again took up the task and founded a town that survived. That was Cecilton, incorporated in 1864. Located between the Bohemia and Sassafras Rivers, which attracts a great deal of seasonal tourism to the town, it is centered at the largest crossroads south of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. Cecilton is the hub of community, public facilities and services offered in lower Cecil County. The town continues to provide a hometown look and feel even though it is within close proximity to a growing region. Individuals can enjoy services, benefits and amenities of traditional urban services, but in the middle of the beauty, peacefulness and quiet countryside of rural life. The town is surrounded by farmland that is an important component of its history and economy, much of which has been placed in agricultural preservation programs, ensuring that the town will maintain its rural character. Cecilton is a small town offering something for everyone, with a strong commitment to preserving a high quality of life in a quiet residential community that is without a doubt “The Way Life Should Be.” Population: 552; Incorporated: 1864 Town Hall Address: PO Box 317 117 W.

Charlestown Located where the North East River meets the Chesapeake Bay, Charlestown was an active shipping center in its early days. In 1742 the colonial village became the first incorporated town in Cecil County, and briefly served as the county seat. Although today Charlestown is peaceful and primarily residential, you’ll also find marinas, growing businesses, several restored colonial structures, and a wharf that’s quite a popular place to cast a line and catch a fish.

Chesapeake City Once known as the “Village of Bohemia”, Chesapeake City was incorporated in 1839 shortly after the construction and opening of the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal. Today it is the only town in Maryland situated on a working commercial canal. Most of its interesting 19thcentury architecture remains intact and the historic area on the south bank is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Chesapeake City is a destination town widely known for its unique inland view of ocean-going vessels, proudly preserved and displayed reminders of its history, and friendly hospitality. Travelers discover fine dining, picturesque stores, art galleries, outdoor concerts, seasonal events, bed & breakfasts, hiking/bicycling trails, and an outstanding museum showcasing the history of the Canal. From its origin as a rough and rowdy boomtown, through an era of dispiriting depression, Chesapeake City has emerged as a charming and interesting place to live and visit. Chesapeake City is truly the “Hidden Treasure of the Chesapeake”.

Elkton Elkton is located on the colonial highway of America. Our country’s forefathers navigated its waterways and traveled its roads when heading north to Philadelphia, or south to Virginia. Once known as Head of Elk named by Captain John Smith, it sits at the northern headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay. Elkton played a significant role in both the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. Many of the town’s beautiful colonial structures remain today, surrounded by buildings that reflect an active business community. The once infamous “marriage capital” has developed into a thriving economic arena for service and retail industries, several large manufacturers, and Union Hospital. Office buildings, courthouses, the hospital, and retail establishments share space with history in Elkton, which has been the County seat since 1787. Elkton is proud to represent Cecil County with Maryland Main Street and Arts and Entertainment District designations.

North East The North East River played a significant role in the early years of this town. Mills were built along its shores, farms prospered, and local fishermen found the area to be rich in stock. One of its churches, St. Mary Anne’s Episcopal Church, dates back to the early 1700s, and has one of the oldest graveyards in the state. Today the neighborly town enjoys a charming renovation and is a tourist destination for visitors who like regional foods, boating, history, and antiques and collectibles shopping. A few miles south of town is Elk Neck State Park, surrounded on three sides by water with a breathtaking view next to the Turkey Point Light House.

Perryville Along the banks of the Susquehanna River lies the Town of Perryville. An area steeped in history, Perryville boasts Rodgers Tavern, which was frequented by General George Washington in his travels from Virginia to New York, and the Principio Iron Works, which were destroyed by the British during the War of 1812. Perryville is also a railroad town; the Perryville Train Station built in 1905 provides MARC services to points south, including Baltimore City and Washington, D.C. Today’s Perryville honors its past while embracing its future. Other area highlights include the Principio Mansion, waterfront communities, two waterfront community parks, travel plaza, outlet center, golf course, multiple biking and hiking trails and Maryland’s first casino. 28

Port Deposit Historic Port Deposit is nestled between granite cliffs and the banks of the Susquehanna River. The tiny village was once a place where men made fortunes in shipping and granite quarrying. Fishing was also a big industry with a plentiful supply of shad and rockfish. The entire town is now on the National Historic Register, and its architecture is reminiscent of its glory days in the 1800s. The waterfront, which was once a port for the arrival of arks and rafts loaded with sellable goods, now houses boat slips and an attractive condominium community. Travelers come to town for river fishing, eateries, and a stroll down a unique and historic Main Street. See if you can find a gargoyle among the diverse architectural styles of this quaint town.

Rising Sun Rising Sun got its unique name from an old tavern located in the center of town in the 1700s that had a sign with a picture of a sunrise. Since this was a popular watering hole located at a point where five wagon trails all came together, many travelers and frontiersman were known to say, “We’ll meet at the Rising Sun,” and so the name of the town was established. A little known fact, its beautiful rolling hills and landscape were originally part

of the Nottingham Lots of Pennsylvania, and were part of a land dispute between William Penn of Pennsylvania and the Proprietary Governor of Maryland, Charles Calvert, 5th Baron of Baltimore. This border conflict waged for years and was actually known as Cresap’s War. When the Mason-Dixon Line was established and a new boundary line between Maryland and Pennsylvania was created, Rising Sun was officially made part of Cecil County, Maryland. Limestone benchmarks can be found in the area marking the Mason-Dixon Line.

HISTORY

HISTORY By Land and By Sea Cecil County is steeped in American history, and has many historic sites and districts, churches and museums. American Indians were the earliest inhabitants. “White men” arrived by ship in the early 1600s as part of an expedition led by one of Cecil’s most famous visitors - Captain John Smith. He and his men explored the rivers and met the native American residents living along their shorelines. Because of Cecil’s strategic location at the headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay, it became a bustling transportation route during the colonial era. Wares and travelers, including famous founding fathers, arrived at and departed from its ports, and traveled by horse drawn wagons along the county’s dusty roads. In the early 19th century, less than one year after President James Madison persuaded Congress to embark on a second war with England, the British blockaded the Chesapeake Bay and sailed up the Elk River. It was April of 1813. They traveled the Elk, North East, and Sassafras Rivers and burned waterfront houses and buildings of commerce at Frenchtown, Fredericktown, and Principio Furnace. Due to the action and bravery of local citizens, the British were unable to reach the county seat of Elkton, thus could not burn the town. They considered setting their sights on Port Deposit along the Susquehanna River, but reconsidered. During the Civil War, Cecil became a border county in a border state, with some citizens supporting the Union, and others the Confederacy. No battles took place in this part of Maryland, but there were notable people and happenings. What is now the Town of Perryville became a staging area for Union troops and supplies as well as the site of a “Mule School” which readied the animals for troop transport and war. Snow’s Battery was one of the county’s notable Civil War units from Port Deposit, which battled alongside Union forces at Antietam. Many Cecil County men left their homes and families to fight on both sides, with and against family and neighbors. 40

A drive through Cecil County today will take visitors past exquisite manor homes, 18th century churches, and covered bridges. Roadside historic markers tout the area’s history including inns, taverns, and plantations where folks like Lafayette and Washington hung their hats. Travelers can visit the C&D Canal Museum, or Mount Harmon - a tobacco plantation south of Cecilton. They can tour Upper Bay Museum, or Sinking Springs Herb Farm where a sycamore tree that sprouted in the 1500s spreads its shade over an 18th Century log farmhouse.

HISTORY

Rodgers Tavern stands on the east bank of the Susquehanna River in Perryville. The tavern is a monument to our country’s early history and a reminder of a past way of life in Cecil County. Built in the early eighteenth century, the tavern was known first as the Ferry House or Stevenson’s Tavern and was located next to a ferry established in 1695. The Rodgers family was actively involved in supporting the American cause during the Revolutionary War. In 1775, John Rodgers raised and commanded a company of militia for the defense of Maryland. Because of the Tavern’s strategic location on the main thoroughfare, and the owner’s patriotic tendencies, it was a favorite stopping place for such Revolutionary figures as George Washington, Lafayette, and Rochambeau. Other distinguished visitors included Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. Just one year after John Rodgers bought the tavern, in 1781, Washington brought officers and troops through the Lower Ferry Crossing on his way to his victorious campaign against Cornwallis at Yorktown, Virginia.

The Tome School for Boys The Tome School for Boys, originally located on Main Street in Port Deposit, Maryland was founded by Jacob Tome as a nonsectarian college preparatory school for boys. It opened for boarders and received its first students in 1894. It was part of a system of schools that began with kindergarten and extending through high school that was collectively known as the Jacob Tome Institute. The Tome School is significant in military history as the location of the Naval Academy Preparatory School NAPS from 1943 to 1974, excepting the years 1949 to 1951. The NAPS, the third oldest school in the U.S. Navy after the Naval Academy and the Naval War College, prepares enlisted candidates in the Navy and Marine Corps for admission to the Naval Academy. The NAPS was located in the Tome School buildings for a total of 29 years covering a period of three major wars, during which the school played a continuing role in providing naval leadership for those conflicts.

Mt. Harmon On a high bluff overlooking the Sassafras River sits Mount Harmon circa 1730, an immaculately restored manor house with 200 acres of nature preserve. The land was granted to Godfrey Harmon in 1631 by Caecilius Calvert, the second Lord Baltimore. The plantation flourished as a tobacco plantation, complete with its own ships that took the valuable crop to Europe, returning with furnishings for the house and farm. In 1927, Mount Harmon left the family’s ownership. In 1963, Mrs. Harry Clark Boden IV bought the property and had the manor house restored to the way it looked in the late 1700s and early 1800s. In 1997, the property was donated to a national preservation organization. Today, the Friends of Mount Harmon take responsibility for maintaining the property and educating visitors about its rich history. Mount Harmon is open for guided tours May-October, and is

available by appointment for educational tours and special group tours. Mount Harmon makes a spectacular setting for weddings, corporate retreats, and private functions. Special events are scheduled throughout the Summer and Fall. For more information about Mt. Harmon, call (410) 275-8819 or visit http://www.mountharmon.org.

History of the Chamber In the 1920s, Chambers of Commerce were established to serve as economic development entities, helping businesses grow, supporting an educated workforce, establishing practices for workforce development, and steering legislation that was business-friendly. The Cecil County Chamber of Commerce began as a subsidiary of the New Castle County Chamber in Delaware. It was formed primarily as an outlet for the New Castle Chamber’s insurance sale program in Maryland. In 1987, the board of directors of the Cecil County Chamber voted to declare independence from New Castle, and a part-time executive director was hired. On January 1, 1988, the Cecil County Chamber became a completely autonomous entity. Through the efforts of several influential Cecil County citizens, a capital campaign was organized. Approximately $30,000 was donated by local government and businesses. These monies, along with the other charter members’ initial dues investments, enabled the Chamber to survive for the first couple of years, while becoming established and developing its own programs and fund-raising activities. Today the membership is served by a 12-member volunteer Board of Directors, two full-time employees, and one part-time employee. Cecil County’s local business community has needs and interests similar to those who were served by the very first chambers of commerce nearly a century ago. The Board, staff and volunteers of the Cecil County Chamber of Commerce are committed to meeting those needs and helping our member businesses grow and prosper. www.cecilchamber.com


Message from the Chair of the Board of Directors On behalf of the Cecil County Chamber of Commerce, we are pleased to provide this Community Guide and Business Directory and trust you will find it a valuable resource. The Chamber is an advocate and resource for its members and this publication is a critical element as part of that role. Cecil County is a vibrant community rich with spectacular natural variety from the rolling hills in the northern part of the County to the shores of the Susquehanna River and Chesapeake Bay. Whether you enjoy equine activities, fishing, boating or sailing, you can find it here. If you prefer a day of shopping in quaint shops along with a fine dining experience, you can find it here. You will also find that Cecil County has an industrious, well-educated work force, excellent access to road and rail transportation and a location that provides incredibly ready access to the amenities and markets of the Northeast Corridor. For those of us fortunate enough to live, work and play in Cecil County, there is no doubt why we proudly state “I Cecil”. For those interested in learning more, the Cecil County Chamber of Commerce invites you to pay a visit and learn why we take such pride and how you can become a part of this extraordinary community. Sincerely, Joseph DiNunzio Artesian Water Chair, 2015-2016 Board of Directors

BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT

In the Cecil County Spotlight Ben Cardin Trail Chesapeake City

Hikers, walkers, and bikers now enjoying the new section of the C&D Canal Recreational Trail At precisely 10 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 5, U.S. Senator Ben Cardin, former Delaware governor Mike Castle, and Chesapeake City Mayor Dean Geracimos arrived at the north side public dock aboard the Miss Clare Ferry Boat. They were greeted by dozens of people— Chesapeake City residents, government officials, and trail users—to celebrate the opening of the Maryland segment of the C&D Canal Recreational Trail, and to honor Sen. Cardin for his efforts to make the trail a reality. “Chesapeake City is now officially a trail town,” said Geracimos proudly. “This is not just a great day, but an historic day.” The brand new 1.8-mile trail segment connects to the Mike Castle Trail in Delaware, forming a 17-mile trail that stretches from Delaware City to Chesapeake City for runners, walkers, and bicyclists to enjoy. “Our residents are going to be able to enjoy the trail on a daily basis,” Geracimos said, explaining that the trail will also attract more visitors to town and provide economic development opportunities for Chesapeake City.

The trail is perfect for cycling, running, jogging, walking, hiking, inline skating, or roller skating. The community will see the benefits of the trail for many years. According to Geracimos, the completion of the Ben Cardin segment of the C&D Canal Recreational Trail is only the first step of providing recreational opportunities for residents. The final designs for another trail that starts on the south side of Chesapeake City and runs along Route 213 to the middle school and high school and then to the Cecil County Public Library are underway. This future link to the trail will provide a bicycling and walking option for students, and will keep them off routes that are heavily traveled by motorists.

New Cecil College Engineering & Math Building North East

Creating a bold sense of arrival As part of Cecil College’s ten-year Campus Master Plan, the need to construct an engineering and math facility to support the educational and training requirements of the high-tech industries and their employees was high on the priority list. It’s now a dream realized. 70

BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT

Originally dedicated in October 2014, the three-story structure on the North East campus now embarks on its second full year as one of the College’s architectural centerpieces, one that provides space for expanding course offerings in engineering, math and physics. It also assists the College in promoting the STEM initiative to prepare students for careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics while they are in middle school. Inside the building are eight learning

laboratories; two laboratory preparation rooms for engineering and physics; a math tutoring and testing center; a conference and distant learning room; group and quiet study areas; and an outdoor terrace. Built on space previously occupied by vacant grounds and parking lots, the exterior of the building is comprised of block stone and glass walls with green roofing trays over an SBS-modified bituminous membrane roof. The building was designed and constructed to attain LEED silver certification, and it clearly shows. It is covered by a green vegetated roof, contains energy efficient lighting and HVAC equipment; and monitors and controls energy usage.
